It makes you compare and evaluate, not introspect.
It makes you greedy and corrupt.
Oh wait, maybe it’s not Facebook, it’s just me.
“Comparison is the thief of joy,” said T Roosevelt.
Of course it is the root of good too.
It has the power to spread revolutions.
Highlight everyday heroes.
Collect funds.
Overthrow governments.
Write constitutions.
Crowd-source movements.

And. Facebook envy fosters dissatisfaction.
Says a survey. And I quote.
The leading online and offline envy provokers in Germany are related to “Travel and Leisure”.
It’s true! Unless your the Buddha.
